Now this is one of my favourite meals. It’s easy, it’s healthy, cheap and great for both winter and summer.
Plus, it’s one I can make in my slow cooker, and I love any excuse to fire up that bad boy.
Goblin tends to fed meaty things at the childminders and I’m perfectly satisfied with a mostly meat free diet. I do like to order meat when eating out, but at home I’m good with veggie food.
I love quorn as it’s so high in protein and will really make a dish feel satisfying. It’s lean too.
Here’s what I used for my chilli:
- 1 400g pack of quorn (frozen)
- 1 tin baked beans
- 1 tin of tomatoes
- A good squeeze of tomato purée
- Sprinkle of cumin
- Sprinkle of chilli powder
- Dried coriander
- Dried basil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 pepper, chopped
- 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
- Olive oil
- Basmati rice
- Fresh coriander
- Spring onions, chopped
- Grated cheddar
First I heat some olive oil in my big pan. When heated, I throw in the chopped onion and pepper and cook for a few minutes. Then I add the frozen quorn just to defrost, heat through and seal.
When ready to eat, I cooked the rice, served it up sprinkled with fresh coriander. I served the chilli on the rice, and added nachos, grated cheddar and chopped spring onions to top it off!
